The Effect of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) in Risky Pregnants

Overview

Risky pregnant women need various physical and mental health needs, they need to be informed and supported by health personnel. Mindfulness is a non-judgmental and accepting focus of one's attention on what is happening right now. A total of 92 pregnant women (46 experimental, 46 control) are planned to be included in the study. Data will be collected with "Descriptive Information Form", "Prenatal Distress Scale (PBL)-Revised Version", "Pregnancy-Related Anxiety Scale-Revision 2" and "Prenatal Attachment Inventory". In the study, a stress reduction program (MBSR) based on mindfulness will be applied by the researcher to the pregnant women in the experimental group.

Detailed Description

Risky pregnancies are a situation that can negatively affect the health of the mother and the fetus, result in the loss of the baby, and bring about physical, social and mental changes. Mindfulness-based approaches have been used in solving both physical and mental problems in pregnant women and very positive results have been obtained. The aim of this study, which was carried out to determine the effect of mindfulness-based stress reduction program (MBSR) on stress, anxiety and prenatal attachment in high-risk pregnant women, is aimed at creating appropriate intervention programs for high-risk pregnancies and contributing to the improvement of pregnancy outcomes. A total of 92 pregnant women (46 experimental, 46 control) are planned to be included in the study. Data will be collected with "Descriptive Information Form", "Prenatal Distress Scale (PBL)-Revised Version", "Pregnancy-Related Anxiety Scale-Revision 2" and "Prenatal Attachment Inventory". In the study, a stress reduction program (MBSR) based on mindfulness will be applied by the researcher to the pregnant women in the experimental group.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Prenatal Distress Scale
    • Time Frame: At the end of the 1 months
    • The minimum score that can be obtained from the scale is “0”, the maximum score is “34”, and as the score obtained from the scale increases, prenatal distress levels also increase.
  • Pregnancy-Related Anxiety Scale
    • Time Frame: At the end of the 1 months
    • For primiparas, a minimum of 11 points and a maximum of 55 points is obtained, and for multipars, a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 50 points are obtained. As the score obtained from the scale increases, it is accepted that the level of anxiety in pregnancy is higher.

Secondary Measures

  • The Prenatal Attachment Inventory
    • Time Frame: At the end of the 1 months
    • A minimum of 21 and a maximum of 84 points can be obtained from the scale. The increase in the score obtained by the pregnant indicates that the level of attachment also increases.
